Silly question...Britt gets goals but has limitations, and would probably score more in an attacking team, such as Villa, if we could get a striker like Abrahams in to replace him, would that be acceptable or not (unlikely, but given Villa's current position, could he be tempted?)

 

I don't think it would make a massive difference, our problem is we lack creative players and our manager has very little positive mindset.

 

It's hard to see how things will change unless Pulis changes his attitude.

 

I'm willing to sell Britt based on the assumption that we're gonna need to balance the books soon and while Pulis is here I have very little expectation of promotion anyway.

Stoke have made a £3.5m bid for @Wolves defender Danny Batth, and the deal could go through later today. Batth has been on loan at Middlesbrough but this will be a permanent move #scfc #wwfc

 

John Percy Telegraph. Can see this going through.

 

 

Percy is always on the money like.

So were gonna sign a cb now yay..  Or just move Shotton across and sign a right back.

 

This. Just sign a god damn right back. We'll no doubt bring Gareth McAuley out of retirement.

Batth wouldn't be much of a loss. Sign a RB, have Shotton challenge for RB and CB. Wood is there if needs be with injuries too.

 

16 year old centre back in a promotion push .. what could go wrong

 

Or we could just play Fry there, in his actual position.

So the rumour is we are selling our only functioning forward. I have been critical of Britt in the past and questioned exactly what he does but as others have said he will score 1 in 2 or (3 at worst) so I had my answer.

 

He is clearly not a Pulis player and looked useless on saturday but I still fear what will happen if he goes as you just can't see where any goals will come from

 

My only hope is that there is someone lined up in the window who meets the pace/power/goals requirement....

 

Its the hope that kills you!

He could have been one of those with the flu. I guess the thing with Britt is, if he isn't scoring goals he doesnt look the best as there isn't much else to his game.

Tend to agree. Big plus having him in the squad but we have Shotton and Fry who can play CB. Their original positions and Mcnair to sub in at RB should we get an injury or two

Is this being done to enable us to sign Adama on loan. Isn't there some rule that prevents you from signing more than one player from a club on loan?

Do you ever sit and wonder what our club long term vision is?

 

Are we investing in youth? Are we trying to get instant success?

 

I can't help but feel the foundations of Karanka and the stability he made has been eroded slowly.

 

Our limited attacking threat is going. Bamford being sold? Assombalonga rumoured to be leaving? What the *** is going on?!

 

Whilst we are still left with players who can only play one way.

 

What worries me the most is that we're not even thinking about next season with now. Are our decisions being made with next season in mind?

 

It's worrying.

    • I don't think either of them is in any way better than our level either. They're good for a top half championship side but they wouldn't see a minute in the premier league. Maybe in a few years Time, but for now definitely not
    • MFC v QPR, Friday 17th April 2021 Kick Off: 12.30 Location: The Cellnet Riverside Stadium "Tenth versus Eleventh... Will we see a major swapping of places in the league?" This Saturday, an early kick off sees the showcases a dramatic limp towards the end of the season for two teams that may have harboured promotion hopes at the start of the season. The kick off time was rescheduled following the sudden death of Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh so as not to clash with his funeral. There really isn't a great deal to play for, for either side in this one. We could swap places in the league. We could try and get some winning momentum to take into next season. We could play some of the kids, see if they are any good. To me, this season now feels a bit like the last few weeks at school before the summer holidays. You've already had your report, the weather is getting better and it doesn't really matter what you do now as it's not going to make much difference. Fresh start next year! Fry and Tavernier are still unavailable for this one. Assombalonga's brief cameo at Bournemouth probably didn't do him any favours for the rest of the season or next. It looks likely that we might see Josh Coburn given some game time before the end of the season. He's a striker and looking like he might be a good one for the future, may as well see what he can do now!  No doubting that our woefully inept loanee keeper will be given another chance to demonstrate his lack of ability. He reminds me of an outfield player who has had to play in goal because the proper keeper got sent off or injured during the game. I keep find myself thinking "a real keeper would've done better..." a lot.  VIEW FROM THE OTHER SIDE A quick look and I found this here. Basically of the same opinion as most of us. Nothing to play for. Give the reserves a chance. etc. etc. FOOT IN BOTH CAMPS Give us a goal John O'Rourke played for the hoops after leaving Boro in the 70's Mickel Beck joined QPR on loan from Derby after leaving Boro in the 90's Warnock saved from relegation then guided QPR to the Premiership in the 00's. TALKING POINTS Meh...
    • Ah got you! Yeah in terms of players we have signed post-relegation, I don't think there has been any.  You could argue the likes of Dijksteel and Bola would potentially go to clubs further up the chain than us. If they did you could have them as examples, but that is all hypothetical at the moment.
    • Adama was also brought in when we were playing at a higher level, whether he was ready for that or not. He was brought in to play at that level. The reality is he wasn't ready for it and Pulis made it so that he was, for sure. But it's not like we spent a less than significant sum on a player whilst we were in this division and made them better. Braithwaite has the trajectory, but as you say he didn't get his move to the Spanish top flight because of his development here, it was for the same quality and expectation we had of him when we brought him here.
    • I did mean our second relegation! But Adama is the best/only recent example that fits the bill imo. It's not good.
